a complex one. the two driving forces of growth here play into the messages of both campaigns. mr. obama points to his administration's auto rescue for saving jobs. and romney emphasizes the need for domestic energy production as an economic engine for the area. >> we've had a lot of positive economic news over the last couple of months. and so the question is, is it too close to the election to really make an impact on people's votes? or are people still kind of weighing the economic realities of the country and of the state. >> reporter: the city of lord's town is home to a sprawling general motors factory, the area's largest employer. once on the verge of collapse, it's become a national symbol of the federal bailout of the auto industry and a center piece of mr. obama's campaign. former president bill clinton who will visit ohio next week with the president pointed to the plant's success as this summer's democratic party conventions in charlotte. >> the auto industry restructuring worked. it saved-- it saved more than a million jobs, and not just at gm, chrysler and their dealerships
. >> i'm barack obama, and i approve this message. >> also mrs. obama has been encouraging people to take advantage of early voting just in case, her words here, your toilet overflows on election day and you can't get to the polls. interesting message there. also, lena dunham, creative writer and lead actor in the tv show "girls." here she is talking about voting for the first time. >> your first time shouldn't be with just anybody. you want to do it with a great guy. you don't want a guy who says, oh, hey, i'm at the library studying when he's really out not signing the lilly ledbetter act or who thinks gay people should never have beautiful complicateded weddings like the kind we see on bravo or tlc all the time. super uncool to be out and about and somebody says, did you vote? no, i wasn't ready. my first time voting was amazing. i voted for barack obama. >> well, the ad is facing backlash in conservative circles for being too risque, but they're not the target audience. finally, it's no secret that both campaigns are pointing a lot of time and resources into the state of ohio. it can
is that there is some arguments on both sides but i'm not very optimistic that if mr. obama's reelected much of this is going to get fixed. >> nariman, i give you the last word. do you agree with that? >> i have two disagreements. one that deleveraging continues if you look at things like household debt to disposable income numbers they keep going down. households are still deleveraging. the other issue we were ae to go rapidly in the '90s and 2000s and import a lot. i don't blame globalization or trade the fact we're growing slowly. no. i think we're deleveraging. i think that is big factor for households and banks. >> we agree to disagree. melissa: good for you. thanks for coming on, guys. we appreciate it. have a great weend. here to react to the october jobs report is phil angelides. he is obama surrogate, former head of the financial crisis inquiry commission. phil, welcome back to the show. >> good to be with you, melissa. melissa: go ahead and spin it for us. why is this a good report? >> let me start with something one of our guests was talking about. this was a trauma to the financi
is not going to help mr. obama. >> is that because of the spin or do you think voters look at what's happening in their state? do you really think people watch the number and say now i know how to vote, it's picked up? really? >> i think if you're still undecided you're going to be looking at anything. any kind of signal of what's going on with the economy. absolutely what's happening with your neighbors is simply the most important. >> swing states? >> in swing states going to be looking at what's going on with them. if they're undecided they're looking to whether the economy is really improving or not. >> we're going to talk about it all morning. obviously not only is the jobs numbers as christine's pointing out there are huge implications politically. they're expecting those numbers right at 8:30 this morning. we've got to take a short break. still ahead going to talk about jobs. going to talk about this report. and we're also going to ask christine to update us a little bit on what to expect, and not just the number to expect but really what's happening behind that number. here's a questio
event. we'll watch as mr. obama and mr. christy tour sites like the one buff. seaside heights, new jersey and the ferris wheel and rollercoaster that are no more. ed henry is live on the lawn of the white house. >> reporter: you are right about the president not going into new york city. mayor bloomberg concerned about police officers already pulled in rescue efforts. it happens any time the president will go into a disaster scene. governor christie as you know decided it would be appropriate for the president to come in right now. he just landed a extort time ago in atlantic city. now the president is with the government doing a helicopter tour onboard marine one looking north of atlantic city, getting an idea of the damage, to give you a sense as you have been reporting, we got a full report suggesting before this, before the president even got there, when governor christie was meeting with other people in the region. he had people openly weep hog had lost hair homes, lost their businesses. think about the remarkable scene we are about to get when we get these pictures back in of
, mr. barack obama. it's an honor. >> with just 11 days until election, president obama made the media rounds this week, in between a nonstop campaign scheduled today alone, the president did at least seven affiliate interviews, a handful of radio interviews and a live interview for the under-30 crowd on mtv. what are you most worried about? malia getting her driver's licenses, malia malia going out on a date or malia being on facebook? >> i would worry about facebook. >> mitt romney on the other hand is playing hard to get. >> although it was last april when we began requesting that former governor romney answer your questions, his team has told us he's been, quote, unable to fit it in, unquote. >> we should also know once again, we've asked for the chance to spend similar time with the romney campaign. >> of course we extended the same offer to governor romney and we hoped to be able to bring you that interview sometime soon. >> joining me now for an exclusive interview, mtv's sway callaway. sway, congratulations. >> thank you very kindly. >> it turns out he's not that hard to get. h
. meanwhile the obama camp has released a new ad taking aim at mr. romney's economic plan. >> in here it's just you. no ads, no debates, just you. so think about this. mitt romney's plan rolls back regulations on the banks that crashed our economy. medicare voucherized. >> president obama also talking about avoiding the fiscal cliff which would trigger tax hikes and spending cuts two short months from now. he says he wants to work with congressional republicans on it. >> i've said to folks, i'll go to capitol hill. i'll wash john boehner's car. i'll walk mitch mcconnell's dog. i'll do whatever is required to get this done. >> president obama heads to new hampshire a bit later today for a stop in nashua. vice president biden is scheduled to hold an event in lynch burg, virginia. >>> now we go to ohio where nbc's ron mott is on that bus tour with paul ryan. hello to you ron again. where are you in the many stops on that bus tour today? >> reporter: hey there, alex. i've got to get my back stretched out. we've got five stops as you mentioned here today. three more tomorrow. eight in total.
with federal emergency officials. mr. obama spoke with homeland security secretary janet napolitano and fema administrator craig fugate among others. they promise to bring all available resources to the hardest-hit areas prepositioning many right now. local governments are getting ready as well. seven states as well as d.c. have now declared states of emergency. the latest being connecticut. mandatory evacuations are now planned in both new york and new jersey. we're keeping an very close watch as well on the airports for you. at this point there are no major delays to report. but major problems are definitely possible in the coming days. all the major airlines are waiving fees for any passengers who want to reschedule their flights to the affected areas along the eastern seaboard. it is a big area. we have a team of correspondents deployed along the east coast including nbc's al roker and the weather channel stephanie abrams in delaware. colleagues jim can torre and mike sidell are in new york city and new jersey. they will all be joining us throughout our coverage today. we begin here in s
-storm opportunism. citizens in the northeast aren't turning on their tvs if they have electricity to hear mr. obama opine about subways letting. they're tuning in to hear governor chris christie talk about damage to the jersey shore, mayor bloomberg tell them when bus service might resume. and connecticut governor danell malloy to say when the state's highways might reopen. energetic governors and mayors are best equipped to handle disaster relief because they know their cities and neighborhoods far better than the feds ever will, and they know their citizens will hold them accountable. the feds can help with money and perhaps expertise. the larger liberal fallacy here is that effective government requires bigger government. actually, i think everybody needs everybody but, you know, whatever. >> i think what the world needs now is love, sweet love. so are they saying to the president's opportunistic here? >> making a jab at big government when actually this is the one time the government actually is needed. >> as we said, "the new york times" -- >> do you want to take a look and see if there's more
20 years. host: here is to get on twitter. how do residents in new hampshire regard mr. sununu and his remarks on president obama? guest: governor sununu is a knowledgeable former governor of new hampshire. he was chief of staff for herbert walker bush. he knows national politics and has been doing quite a bit of television on behalf of the republican party. a very smart man, very well respected. certainly, anyone in politics who is on television a lot and is commenting sometimes may or may not say something that they regret. i am not going to judge each one of his remarks, but -- host: has it had an impact on the new hampshire voter? guest: is very well-respected in new hampshire, which is maybe one reason why he has been up front for the republican party. he is among people in new hampshire would tend to listen to. the senator is very popular, and our outgoing governor, the president pass campaign used him in advertising because he is so popular. he has been on the stage with the president. they are using surrogates like that. i think that the president's campaign is very sma

. and president obama did a half an hour chat with them, but at the end of it he said, boot way that's off the record. they said, come on, mr. president, we'd like to hear what you have to say. that kind of back fired and did later release it. the big story is conventional wisdom to endorse the president, but they've instead endorsed mitt romney. >> clayton: not since 1972, 40 years, unbelievable. here is what they had to say about the decision to pick mitt romney. our discussion repeatedly circled back to the single most important challenge, getting the economy out of the doldrums and more americans and meaningful jobs with promising futures and the federal government on track to balance the budget in a bipartisan manner which the country demand. which candidate could force the compromises in congress to achieve the goals. when the question is framed in those terms, mitt romney emerges as the stronger candidate and the sentence stuck out for me, the president's best efforts to resuscitate the stumbling economy have fallen short and nothing indicates it would change in a second term. >> st
company. next up is zanesville, ohio. we will take you there live. a look at the ground games of the obama and romney campaigns. >> she's a national political reporter and is here to talk to us about the ground game in campaign 2012. welcome to the program. >> what exactly is a ground game? >> mrs. the political component known as field organization, so all of the things that the campaigns do to connect with voters, individually, on the ground, through field offices, through phone calls, and knocking on doors, and trying to drive people out to the polls, so beyond, you know, what the candidates do, when they're giving speeches on the stump, and beyond the ads that you see on tv and beyond the crafting of the message that the speechwriters and the ad writers do, this is the part of the campaign that comes down to connecting with voters, and making sure they vote. >> how important is the ground game this year compared with previous elections? >> i think it tends to be a pretty consistent part of any political campaign. it's something that democrats tend to emphasize a little bit more than re
